Congress: 31 May – 04 June 2018
Extension: 04 June – 06 June 2018


The 50th FICB International Congress will take place in Macedonia, the biblical land with thousands of years long history of wine production. The main hub during the congress will be Skopje, the capital, with daily tours in the wine region of Macedonia. The extension will be in Ohrid, the UNESCO World heritage town, a cultural and spiritual center of South – East Europe placed by the beautiful Ohrid Lake, also on the UNESCO list, for its great biodiversity as the oldest lake in Europe. The extensive program during the congress and the extension offers unique experiences of ancient traditions, music, mouthwatering Balkan dishes, and exceptional wines made in Macedonia, as well as a special “Wines of the World” tasting and academic session with opportunities for professional contacts for participants involved in the wine industry.
A detailed itinerary and additional information may be found in the full brochure which is available as a download from the Welcome Page at www.vinskivitezi.mk. Please check back often for updates which will be posted there as well.
